    The ambience & feel of this hotel felt very comforting & pleasing. The staff is very helpful & amiable. We stayed in the lagoon room which had a very good view of the lagoon. The room was big and comfortable. The breakfast served was wonderful. Overall, highly recommended.

    Nice in Knysna

    Great location. Easy and efficient helpful check in. The room was lovely with fantastic 'public' lounges and a great breakfast. The whole team who are there deserve mention as nothing was too much trouble. They were available whenever you needed help or not. Great attention to detail to make your stay a great experience. They even got our car washed within an hour of arrival as we had been ion some really long dusty gravel roads. A wonderful location overlooking the lagoon. Rooms are well appointed and everyone has time for you. Its the best hotel we have stayed at in Knysna
